Improving care of chronic conditions is a major priority for healthcare providers, patients and payers. Connected Health strategies -- using technology to gather accurate physiologic patient data, give patients and providers easy access to this data and offer personalized coaching and incentives to patients to stick to their care plan -- are creating unique opportunities to help diabetes patients better manage their disease. One example is DiabetesConnect, a new practice-based monitoring program used by nurses, diabetes educators, endocrinologists, nutritionists, primary care physicians and other clinical care providers to help patients best manage their diabetes.
